Privacy Statement
Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used by us.


How We Use the Information

We collect personal information about registered users to help administrate and enhance the service.

We do not collect personal information about people without their permission. The personal information we gather during registration is not shared with other organisations or third parties without your permission.

When you register with us, you consent to receive emails from us which may contain promotional information from us or third parties.  You can opt to not receive these emails at any time by changing your account settings. We may also send you emails from time to time regarding the administration of your account.

In common with most organisations, we may share aggregate information about our users with other third parties. This information shows user activity as a whole rather than on an individual basis and cannot be used to individually identify you.


Updating Your Personal Information

We provide a way for you to correct or change information collected during registration. This can be done through the My Account page.

Google Analytcis

We use “Google Analytics” to collect information about use of this site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve this site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognising you on return visits to this site by disabling cookies on your browser. Google Analytics employs cookies to define user sessions, which allows for the collection of data about how visitors are using the websites. Google Analytics uses only first-party cookies for data analysis. This means that the cookies are linked to a specific website domain, and Google Analytics will only use that cookie data for statistical analysis related to your browsing behavior on that specific website. According to Google, the data collected cannot be altered or retrieved by services from other domains. If you choose, you can opt out by turning off cookies in the preferences settings in your web browser.

We use the Demographics and Interest Reporting feature of Google Display Advertising. You can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customise Google Display Network adverts using the Adverts' Settings. In addition, you can use the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-on to disable tracking by Google Analytics.

Privacy Policy Changes

From time to time, we may update this Privacy Policy. We will notify you about material changes in the way we treat personally identifiable information by placing a notice on our site. We encourage you to periodically check back and review this policy so that you always will know what information we collect, how we use it, and to whom we disclose it.
